    How can sport clubs for non-disabled youth include children and adolescents with disabilities?2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Severe obesity and a sedentary leisure-time are more common among young people and adults with disabilities than in the rest of the population. Young people with disabilities participate in sports to a lesser extent than other adolescents. That physical activity has positive effects on children and adolescents, such as reduced risk of diabetes, overweight and obesity, anxiety and depression are understood. The positive effects of participation in organized sport and physical activity are at least as great for children and young people with disabilities as children and young people without disabilities. One of the most important tasks of various actors is to find ways to increase physical activity and the health of children and youth with disabilities. Sports clubs are identified as potential and attractive environments for physical activity, but also for social and mental health. The reasons why children and young people with disabilities participate to a lower extent in organized sport is complex and barriers can be deriving from many different levels. However, barriers have been studied more than what can facilitate participation in organized sport. Therefor the aim of this study is to present the first results from a systematic international and scientific literature review of how sport clubs for non-disabled youth can include children and adolescents with disabilities in their activities.

    Articles (with inclusion criteria of studies focusing on children and adolescents, disability, physical activity, engagement in organized sports, inclusive sport settings) from a 20 years period were selected. Studies with topics that concerned physical education, medical, physical activity without an organized sport agenda, elite sport or equipment issues were excluded. 

    The results will focus on which type of sport, target group and countries the examples are from, but foremost on how sport clubs for non-disabled youth actually do to include children and adolescents with disabilities in their activities.

    It is essential to establish a knowledge base for effective interventions towards the target group at hand. If more children and youth with disabilities participate in organized sports several positive health benefits can be achieved.

    Jämlik idrott och funktionsnedsättningar2019In: Idrotten och (o)jämlikheten: I medlemmarnas eller samhällets intresse? / [ed] Christine Dartsch, Johan R Norberg & Johan Pihlblad, Stockholm: Centrum för idrottsforskning , 2019, p. 133-148Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Hur kan föreningsidrotten passa alla oavsett förutsättningar? Forskning visar att föreningar måste bli bättre på att anpassa ordinarie aktiviteter, snarare än att skilja grupper åt. En jämlik idrottsrörelse kräver en mångfald av aktiviteter - alla vinner på att all organiserad idrott inte ser likadan ut.

    Documented inclusive physical activities for children and adolescents with disabilities withinsport clubs2017In: Nordic Sport Science Conference: 'The Double-Edged Sword of Sport: HealthPromotion Versus Unhealthy Environments’, 2017, p. 36-36Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Young people with disabilities participate to a lower extent in organized sport than their peers without disabilities. Research in this matter has previously focused on the complex barriers that restrict participation in sports clubs, rather then what can facilitate participation and inclusive activities. There is a need to study real examples of how sports clubs can include children and youth with disabilities in the sport program. An overview of inclusion in organized sports regarding children and adolescents with disabilities is lacking today. Therefor the aim of this study is to increase the understanding of how sports clubs include children and adolescents with disabilities in their activities. The results of this systematic search on documented inclusive physical activities within sport clubs shows that are few peer-reviewed studies that describe how (i) children and young people with disabilities are included in sports clubs’ regular, ongoing activities. The sports clubs rather worked with short term intervention-based activities in team-sports settings (what ii). The main documented reasons for sport clubs to inclusion in organized sport (why iii) were to increase the participation of youth with disabilities and to promote social contact between children with and without disabilities. The lack of documentation and the limited collective knowledge-based is discussed as a problem while implementing a successful inclusive approach on adapted physical activity in organized sport settings for all people longer time in life.
